2000 Guineas Result: Camelot Edges Hermival And French Fifteen At The Wire

This morning at Newmarket Racecourse in Newmarket, England, Camelot (GB) edged out Hermival (IRE) and French Fifteen (FR) inside the final furlong to win the 204th running of the Group 1 Quipco 2000 Guineas. Camelot broke slowly and raced near the rear of the pack on the stands side of the course. Inside the final two furlongs, jockey Joseph O'Brien set Camelot down for a sustained drive, taking dead-aim at French Fifteen. Caspar Netscher (GB) raced with the group on the far side of the course and put in a good effort over the last half-mile but couldn't match the power of the first two.

Camelot is a three-year-old son of Montjeu (IRE) out of Tarfar. He is trained by Aidan O'Brien, ridden by Joseph O'Brien, and owned by Coolmore.

The 2000 Guineas is a one mile race on the straight and is the first leg of the English Triple Crown.

I'll have more on Camelot's Guineas win a little later during the weekend.
